  • So we are on way way out of The European Union

    The option to Vote has now driven us out of The Union.

    We now have to take the advantage and not carry on blaming ourselves or others.It was a shock the way it went BUT GET OVER IT.

    The European Union is an organisation that tries to represent Europe.
    It is now nervous that a country has dared to take control of themselves.

    It will not be easy to deal with them because they want us to fail.
    We will not fail and maybe others will split away.That is their biggest fear.

    Northern Ireland now needs to be used as a trade Area to negotiate with Europeans direct.Taking advantage of its doorstep location with Southern Ireland. The UK needs to lower corporation rates to be the same as Ireland.This will be an advantage for all business.

    We need to create a small coordinating and marketing organisation and use CBI and Group Trading organisations to promote Great Britain.The commonwealth needs to be a bigger part of our trade. Our main objective must be to trade globally.
    The social legislation and general laws need to be rewritten and but back into British Law. Maybe a 5 year project.There is going to be lots to sort. In the meantime we can still use Modified European Law and call it that.

    Well they could do that, but since they have absolutely no legal power to do so, they would get roundly and expensively spanked in the courts, to the detriment of our council tax bills... :whistle1:

  • The Heights Primary School, Caversham
    by Freddie (Posted Mon, 14 Jul 2014 23:36:34 GMT)
    peanutbutter wrote:The heat spots on the maps are survey responses... Not where kids haven't got into schools. The coloured areas show where children have got in to caversham primary and Emmer green primary.... demonstrating the large area in the west of caversham that historically don't get places in their catchment schools. There are two different maps.

    Having looked again at the two different maps I must beg to differ. You're suggesting everyone in the west has to send their child where exactly ? (because they've been unable to get in to their catchment school?) In one street (west of A4074) alone I'm aware of there being 6 out of 6 primary school aged kids attending Caversham Primary.
    If you add this discrepancy to the lack of survey responses (hot spots) from the same west of caversham area as evidenced in the other map, I'm now wondering how accurate this need for a new school is.

  • Local self-publicist exposed as bulls*** merchant
    by Stuart Kerr (Posted Mon, 14 Jul 2014 20:17:35 GMT)
    I'm not entirely sure how the media and Councillors ended up focusing on the Van Gogh piece, when he was standing there, next to an Edvard Munch? There are only four authentic versions in the world, with one selling at Sotheby's, two years ago, for $150m. A quick check on Google should have made that obvious.

    How did they miss it?

  • Large branch snapped on tree hanging down, 22nd August
    At the junction of Holburton Road and Whitley Wood Road, there is a large tree on the ground behind the bus stop. A heavy branch has snapped and is hanging down. I think this could cause injury and is a health and safety issue.

  • Traffic light only lets a couple of cars through at a time causing jams, 22nd August
    This traffic light has only been letting cars through a few at a time. This is causing massive queues in Garrard Street and Greyfriars Road of cars that have just exited Garrard Street car park. Last week it took me 2 hours to get from the car park to Tudor Road, while there was minimal traffic on Caversham Road. This problem has been there since last week.

  • 200m of road still in dangerous condition, 19th August
    Wokingham Road, from St Peters Rd to Culver Rd has been in poor condition for years. For cyclists it is DANGEROUS, as I said on here last year. The nearside metre or so on the west side is a succession of cracks, potholes, sunken drains, bumps etc etc for about 200 metres and, if there are cars, there is no way of avoiding them........If not repaired soon I shall have to reluctantly seek publicity in some way in order to shame RBC.

  • Cars driving on pavement, 17th August
    Hi, Residents using 96 Cressingham Road drop down curb to her driveway and speeding along the footpath towards Staverton Road to park either on the pavement or on the grass verge. A bollard needs to be put in place at the top and bottom to stop this before a pedestrian is run over. Maybe also some more wooden bollards could be put in place along the outskirts of the grass verge which is also getting destroyed. It wouldn't be so bad if they drove slowly but some of them are really coming down at high speed. All it wants is for car door to open from someone getting out of there car from the layby or a child crossing the road (from the other side) between the parks car onto the pavement and they wouldn't stand a chance. Any help with this would be great. Thanks.

  • Two people encouraging feral pigeons by feeding them daily., 16th August
    Sadly I have to return to this subject as it has become a problem again. Two people in Waldeck Street are feeding feral pigeons at least once a day, both in the street and at the side of the derelict Woodley Arms. As before, we are not talking of a few scraps of bread but also bird feed. The result is more and more pigeons arriving. They wait for the food by roosting on nearby roofs. To quote RBC, “Pigeons carry a range of diseases such as salmonellosis, tuberculosis, and ornithosis. Droppings, nesting material and dead carcasses can contain a wide variety of mites and insects. These can infest areas where people live and can cause skin irritation, disease, or allergic reactions.” I would also add they can no doubt cause damage to buildings and cars.
